If you have heard about organic bedding, you must know that made either out of bamboo or silk, organic bedding is hypoallergenic in nature. If you suffer from allergies, this type of bedding is the best for you in case you suffer from allergies or in case you have asthma.
Those suffering from skin rashes, runny nose or any other form of allergies can find respite in organic silk and bamboo bedding. However, it is important to understand here what triggers allergies. The most common cause or trigger of allergies is dust mites. They (mites) can trigger allergies when left unchecked. Is there a solution? The key to controlling allergies lies in silk bedding. How does this happen? Science has it that the cocoon in which silk fiber is spun also produces a sticky protein known as sericin that naturally repels pests and mites.
Another trigger that increases allergies is chemicals. Excessive chemicals and pesticides on clothes, food, bedding etc. leads to skin allergies as well as breathing problems. Silk is a definite solution to this problem because it is completely organic in nature and does not need chemicals to boast about a soft texture. The fabric is naturally soft and non-abrasive against the skin. That is just the reason why silk bedding is growing popular day by day. Since silk is absolutely chemical free
Thirdly, silk does not allow mold & mildew to settle. The reason is that the proteins in silk make it averse to fungus, mold and mildew. Mold, mildew etc. can also cause allergies. Therefore, it is important to check the growth of mold and mildew as well.
Considering the fact that silk keeps a check on a number of things that are the triggers of allergies and asthmatic attacks, one can easily say that silk is a future fabric. Clothes and bedding made out of silk not only feel soft on your skin but exhibit all the hypoallergenic properties that have been mentioned above. Other than that, silk offers a number of other benefits that make it the perfect bedding material. For example, those who sleep on silk bedding will tell you that this type of bedding offers a number of cosmetic benefits. The soft luxurious feel of silk bedding also makes it one of the best materials to sleep on since it is comfortable and cozy.
